Visit our 'Kuralai' website to find out about our Alternative livelihood project in Uzbekistan, where local women are creating beautiful traditionally embroidered bags to help save saigas.

Saigas are one of the most threatened species on the planet. Their numbers declined by 95% in just 15 years.

The Saiga Conservation Alliance (SCA) is committed to saving the critically endangered saiga antelope from imminent extinction. We are a long-standing network of scientists and conservationists who work across saiga range states on grassroots projects informed by sound science. At the SCA we believe in bringing stakeholders together to emphasize human needs and to act as a catalyst for sustainable conservation solutions.
Donations are crucial to the SCA. If you would like to support our work, please click here.
